Congratulations to our Award Winners!

You are here

This year, at ECHO's 45th Annual Seminar, we introduced two new annual awards: the Homeowner Association of the Year and the Board Member of the Year.

These awards recognize and honor remarkable California communities and board members who do exceptional work in their homeowner associations and support board education. For the inaugural awards, we are thrilled to honor an association and board member who have demonstrated steadfast dedication both to ECHO and to their association members.

Homeowner Association of the Year

The Villages Association

The Villages Association of San Jose joined ECHO in 1992. Their board oversees the governance and maintenance of 2,309 condominiums in 12 different “Villages,” each unique in its architecture and built at different times over the past 50 years. As a result, they have faced numerous governance and maintenance challenges.

The Villages Association has responded to these challenges, committing to education for generations of board members. Representatives from their various districts (each has its own District Advisory Committee) and members of staff have attended every ECHO Annual Seminar for the past 25 years. Currently, the Association Board of Directors is developing new, forward-thinking policies for member-initiated solar installations.

The Villages Association is an extraordinary community of dedicated homeowners and board members - deserving recipients of ECHO’s first Homeowner Association of the Year award.

Board Member of the Year

Ann Marquis-Fisher

Ann Marquis-Fisher is the president of the Deer Oak Association, and has served on their board for the past 20 years. She is dedicated to the job: after bringing her association into ECHO in 2007 and attending multiple ECHO seminars every year, she now serves as the Chair of ECHO’s East Bay Resource Panel. Her commitment and energy have helped build the East Bay Panel into a growing and vibrant group.

We deeply appreciate her service both to her community and to ours, and we are delighted to name Ann Marquis-Fisher as ECHO’s first Board Member of the Year.
